Perrin Oglafa was born in 1971 in Nigeria. He holds a B.Ed degree from Rivers State College of Education (now Ignatius Ajuru University of Education), Rivers State, Nigeria. Oglafa is well known for his paintings of semi-abstract humanoid forms rendered in acrylic and goache. For Boys’ Quarters Project Space, Perrin showed sculptural works rarely ever seen outside his studio. His insistence on natural materials and his love of the land permeates his handling of the materials he sources on his travels around the Niger Delta. A prominent local artist and cultural ambassador for the Niger Delta, Oglafa is also Boys’ Quarters Manager-At-Large. Oglafa’s work can be found in private and public collections in Nigeria, Italy, France, and the U.K.
